About Thief

About this game

Garrett, the Master Thief, steps out of the shadows into the City. In this treacherous place, where the Baron’s Watch spreads a rising tide of fear and oppression, his skills are the only things he can trust. Even the most cautious citizens and their best-guarded possessions are not safe from his reach.

As an uprising emerges, Garrett finds himself entangled in growing layers of conflict. Lead by Orion, the voice of the people, the tyrannized citizens will do everything they can to claim back the City from the Baron’s grasp. The revolution is inevitable. If Garrett doesn’t get involved, the streets will run red with blood and the City will tear itself apart.

Garrett never paid the price for anything… until now.

It's not an amazing game. It's definitely not an amazing Thief game. On it's own right, however, it's decent enough to warrant a playthrough if you're into FPS or Stealth games.

Off to a good start, easy to follow and the story is interesting so far. Controls are easy and don't feel clunky. AI behaves as you would expect from a game this modern.

Thief is an open world stealth game released by Eidos-Montréal. It was released in the year 2014. It is also referred to as Thief 4. ! Gameplay ! You play as a thief named “Garrett” and your main objective is to steal things and advance through places. The game events are set in a world named “The City". You get coins by stealing things which you can use to buy different arrows and other accessories or weapons. You will find guards who will try to kill you at different places. You can either have a stealth approach or take down your enemies then proceed. During the missions, you will need to pick the locks of doors and drawers to advance through the game and obtain loot. There are different types of arrows like fire arrows, rope arrows, blunt arrows, etc., which are very helpful during the game. You will get a full thief experience while playing the game. There is also a gem at the bottom of your screen which tells if it is hard for your enemies to see you. You can also enable/ disable HUD from the options. You also get a blackjack which you can use during combat or to climb places. It is actually owned by Erin (another thief in the game) but you will have it most of the time. You also have an ability named Focus which you can use to find loot items and position of enemies. ! Graphics ! The graphics of the game are decent. The overall mood of the game dark. Since thieves usually prowl at night time, the environment of the game matches this logic. The game can easily run on low rigs. The movement and interactions look realistic. Since the game was released in 2014, it doesn't have realistic graphics, but it is pretty decent for a game of its time. Rating: 3.9 (4 stars) Full Review: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/UnitedCritics/discussions/0/2979655949475972921/

Unique in 2021

Unique for a game to not be based on killing, but stealth and stealing. It is still playable in 2021
